At any rate, when a good thermal came along, it was just me and the sky gods who were in it together, taking it all the way up to the top of Cascade Mountain. Rain was coming across Utah Lake, and down on launch the rain shadow prevented anyone else from launching. I learned later that they were all stuck on the ground until almost 4 pm (when most then went on to get stellar flights to the south).
Thanks Terri Olsen and Jim Petersen for the photos!
